While at the helm of CaaMTech, Dr. Chadeayne and his research teams have authored several papers on the crystal structure of tryptamine compounds including 4-AcO-DMT (psilacetin), MPT, norpsilocin, and 5-MeO-DALT.1–8 The characterization of these compounds is critical for developing safe and effective psychedelic drugs.
